Award-Winning Duo Dailey & Vincent Inducted Into Grand Ole Opry

Award-Winning Duo Dailey & Vincent Inducted Into Grand Ole Opry


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Multi-GRAMMY® nominees and three-time International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year Dailey & Vincent were formally inducted into the Grand Ole Opry last night by Opry members Old Crow Medicine Show and Jeannie Seely. The duo had been invited to join the Opry by Marty Stuart during their 100th Opry appearance in December.

Seely, who will celebrate 50 years of Opry membership later this year, presented an Opry Member Award to Jamie Dailey, while Old Crow lead singer Ketch Secor did the same for Darrin Vincent.

"I had the honor of introducing Dailey & Vincent for their first Opry appearance," Seely began. "I thought to myself that night, 'I hope one day I get to see them become members of the Opry one day because they epitomize everything the Opry is on stage and off.'"

"They honor the traditions and respect their elders, but most of all they entertain," Secor said. "Tonight they join the ranks of country music's greatest entertainers. … Welcome Dailey & Vincent to the first family of country music."

"We love the Grand Ole Opry. It's in our DNA," Dailey said as he and Vincent recognized family, friends, their band, and members of their organization who'd helped make the night possible. The duo closed their Opry segment with "I'll Go To My Grave Loving You," a hit by one of their musical heroes, The Statler Brothers.

"We are very excited to welcome Dailey & Vincent into the fold," said Opry General Manager Sally Williams. "Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent have been proclaimed the best in their field across the board, winning awards and media acclaim for their songs, their musicianship, and their one-of-a-kind live performances. Over the past 10 years and more than 100 Opry visits, they've brought crowds to their feet both with country, bluegrass, and gospel standards as well as their brand new material. We look forward to Dailey & Vincent being active, beloved Opry members as the Opry looks toward the century mark and beyond."

Among artists scheduled to play the Opry later this month are Opry members Charlie Daniels Band, Del McCoury Band, Rascal Flatts, and Carrie Underwood, along with special guests Brandy Clark, Chris Janson, The Mavericks, and Scotty McCreery. Opry Country Classics continues throughout the spring at the Ryman Auditorium with upcoming Spotlight Artist appearances by Brenda Lee, Lorrie Morgan, Oak Ridge Boys, Tanya Tucker, and more.
